OHIO — To keep Ohio roadways safe, state troopers say they'll be cracking down on impaired drivers. The Ohio State Highway Patrol are also urging the public to remind their loved ones that "fans don't let fans drive drunk."
OSHP said last year, troopers made 48 OVI arrests from 6 a.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday. Within that 24-hour period, one person died in a crash, and it was determined to be OVI related.
There were also 26 OVI-related crashes that injured 15 people.
“Plan ahead and designate a sober driver,” said Col. Charles Jones, patrol superintendent, in a press release. “Troopers know all too well the dangers of driving intoxicated. The consequences can be deadly and life changing.”
If anyone sees dangerous driving on Ohio roadways, they can call #677 to report it.
